I cant tell you how happy I was finding out that RATM beat Joe.
By 50,000+ as well, and apparantly 100,000 of the final figure were just purchases made on saturday!
If I see one more person state that they are both on sony's label I'm going to stab myself in the eye. On both the facebook pages the comments go 1.
Some encouraging comment about RATM 2. Another encouraging comment, and 3. Are you all thick, RATM & Joe are both represented by sony, duhhhhh.
And that cycle just repeats itself over and over and over again.
The aim of the campaign wasnt to make him lose money, or anger Simon in any way... although its obviously an attractive bonus. It was merely to bring
back a bit of competition for the xmas number 1.
And besides, Joe's single sold roughly the amount that the x factor christmas number one's sell anyway.
Plus, Im guessing the people who did purchase RATM wouldnt have been buying Joe's single even if the campaign hadnt been started.
